Beauty Challenge: How To Fake Glowing Skin When You’re Tired


It’s already the last day of the challenge! The week went by so fast and so slow at the same time. Creating a new look and working with entirely new products everyday is harder than it seems. Not I-just-ran-an-ultra-marathon hard, but more like how-can-I-match-my-blue-eyeliner-to-my-outfit hard. To celebrate the end of this week’s adventure, I wrap up the series with a multi products post.

If you know me personally, you know that I don’t sleep a lot. It’s not that I don’t need it, I just genuinely enjoy being awake too much. I go to bed at night, impatient to wake up the morning after, even if I’m only getting 5 hours of sleep.

Unluckily, my insomniac habits are taking a toll on my skin. When I’m sleep deprived, it becomes dull and dry. Luckily, I’ve found a way to make it look like I just had the best night of my life: using only rich creamy nourishing products. That kind of texture fuses with your skin to create a super natural glow and keeps it looking moisturized.


Since last night was a little short (surprise!), I took out all my gel/cream/liquid products that I had never used before and attempted to make a miracle happen:

Prep: Tsubaki Beauty Oil by Boscia

Cheeks:  New Dimension Shape + Sculpt Face Kit by Estée Lauder and Lollitint Cheek & Lip Stain by Benefit Cosmetics

Highlighter: L.A. Lights Blendable Lip & Cheek Color, in Hollywood & Highlight, by Smashbox

Eyes: Colorful Shadow & Liner, in Café au lait, by Sephora

The only downside is that your face we’ll feel a little sticky, but isn’t it worth the most amazing glow in the world? I think it is.
